Fights the bookies got "wrong" but most fight fans got right?

Although Heffron was the bookies favourite the (vast?) majority of online boxing fans seemed to be pretty confident that Vassell would win. Any other examples of this?

A lot of people had Hopkins over Pavlik but I don't think Hopkins-Pavlik was anywhere near as clear cut with boxing fans going against the betting favourite (Pavlik was undefeated while Hops was coming off looking poor against Calzaghe remember) as tonights fight.

Someone will invariably come in with Calzaghe-Lacy. There, guess it was me.
He wasn't the underdog, but I think pretty much everyone knew that Ovill McKenzie was bigger than a 8/15 favourite against Enzo.
This is why you're a gambling phenomenon.
The Hatton fight was strange, even boxing fans were just dismissing a 3 plus year layoff like it was nothing.
There were too many unknowns for me to go near it.
Wonder what odds I can get on a Price and Johnson double, really fancy that.
I did spell it right, but my phone auto corrects 'Pryce' to 'Price'. So fuck you.
